The Australian suburbs “coen” and “kowen” , are they both pronounced ‘Cohen’ as in the boys name?

If anyone knows :)
I like the idea of naming future beardies I get after Australian suburbs since Marlow’s name is an Australian suburb ( not on purpose)
Just wondering how these two are pronounced

I'd be interested to know this as well - I follow a similar naming convention =)

haha at least there are hundreds and hundreds of Australian suburbs we can choose from! :)
I’m liking Eli ( suburb Eli waters) and these Coen / kowen ones if they are said as Cohen.
I like Theodore (suburb Theodore Queensland) also.

I am from Australia, when I read this I say it 2 different ways - I say COEN like (co-win), I say Cohen as (co-han like the singer Mark Cohen) :)
